Bespoke Lens Enables Precision Radiotherapy

Radiation Resistant LensAs increasing numbers of people require radiotherapy as a key part of their cancer treatment, there is a need for treatment delivery systems that can deliver precise and accurate care quickly.

A leading radiotherapy equipment supplier sought a high-resolution lens able to withstand, and precisely focus, the high levels of radiation produced by their synchrotron device onto tumours. Using cerium-doped glasses, Resolve Optics produced a compact f/2.8, 24mm diameter fixed focus lens able to withstand long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100 million radians without discoloration. This new lens is enabling the supplier to improve the precision radiotherapy treatment of tumours that its equipment provides.
